I had to abort due to an ectopic pregnancy. It was life or death as my Fallopian tube had already ruptured. I would not have chosen to, but we live in a country that protect our rights to choose. I do understand the reasons why women have abortions including economic, health and just not wanting a baby. The maternal death rate has tripled since 1984. Forcing women to carry unwanted children is awful and cruel. Women are more important than a cluster of cells. Improve access to birth control and we will see less unwanted pregnancies and fewer abortions.
